Every once in awhile I find myself picking up books like “Why Do Men Marry Witches?” (Ok, so it didn’t say witches in the title.) I legitimately wanted to know why this happened. I wasn’t expecting a book about how you too can be a witch so you can also get married. The book itself is fine for what it is. If that’s what you want then there’s no doubt that these strategies will work. It is a little different than I thought because apparently it’s more about being a strong woman. The whole way through reading it though I was just so frustrated that men never have to buy these books. When was the last time you saw a self-help book for a guy on how to not marry a psycho? Maybe there should be one on “Why Am I Only Attracted to Witches So That Even Nice Girls Have to Act like Witches Even Though They Really Aren’t”. Never…because that book does not exist.
I felt the same way after reading “He’s just not that into you”. It’s another book that’s true…but I wish that it wasn’t. It’s all about being who you aren’t while trying to look like it’s who you really are. As a Type 2 in energy profiling acting cold or aloof really bothers me because it isn’t me and I shouldn’t have to act like it is. Sure, it’s the way the world works but it isn’t the way that the world should work.
Whenever I see a commercial for Bridezillas I wonder how these girls get married. Shouldn’t the mere fact that you’re putting in an application for the show Bridezillas be a good indication that there shouldn’t be a wedding?
I try not to ask myself this question too much but sometimes I still wonder “Why doesn’t he like me?” It doesn’t matter how much self-esteem I have; it freaks me out when a loser guy doesn’t like me. I worry that if I’m not attractive to someone who might not have a job or even a car then how will I ever be with one of the good ones? So I came up with this saying or graphic with the base image from The Graphics Fairy.
While going through this self-help inner crisis it dawned on me that these guys just aren’t that smart. They aren’t smart enough to know when a girl is kind and won’t cause drama. They might not even be smart enough to not want drama. I’m ok with them not liking me now. I believe the right one will be smarter.
